Off the wall genius
Reviewed in the United States on December 1, 2018
Edgar Roy is an enigmatic individual. With his total recall of the past and ability to process multiple streams of real time data simultaneously, he has become the nation’s foremost guard against terrorism: he sees the possibilities of future events like no one else. He should be a national treasure. But lesser individuals, departments, and private security companies don’t see it that way. He supplanted them to some extent and has hurt their reputations and earning power. Needless to say, those entities are hardly disappointed when Roy is arrested for killing and burying six bodies on his farm.
Fortunately, Roy’s lawyer hires Sean King and Michelle Maxwell to assist him in proving Roy’s innocence. But immediately the case takes a bizarre turn when the lawyer is found murdered by King and Maxwell. They quickly realize that powerful forces are arrayed against them finding Roy innocent or even surviving prison, even to the point that their lives are in danger. It is a veritable minefield that they must negotiate to stay alive and identify who are behind the downfall of Roy.
It is a fast moving, interesting story. It is the first book after King and Maxwell have become something more than work partners.
